It’s September. And that means it’s Football season, both professional and college.
Football is my second favorite team sport, after the one that’s played with a bat and glove.
But with revenues to the National Football League expected to reach $14 billion this year, the game played with the elliptical pigskin is inarguably the most successful and most popular team sport in the United States and now making inroads internationally, most notably with annual in-season games played in London.
Welcome to the Autumn Solstice edition of Not Your Usual Caricature Artist from Caricatures by Joel.
Here are a few samples of -- directly or indirectly – football-“related” art I’ve done through the years.
George Clooney in "Leatherheads," filmed in Charlotte, in which I had a role as an "extra."
Bar Mitzvah boy, who enjoyed all sports.
As did this Bar Mitzvah boy (who happens to be my son...)
Commissioned project -- this Crimson Tide fan is fond of both team and individual sports.
...and this gentleman, an active General in the Army, is also a former football coach.
Remember to grab an end zone seat the first Tuesday of next month for another high scoring Not Your Usual Caricature Artist.
